I think I’ve only ever seen one of Nokia’s Prism phones in the wild, and given their unique design, you’d think they’d be easy to spot. So I’m kind of surprised to see the company introducing new models in the Prism line. I guess somewhere the phones must be popular. The Nokia 7070 clamshell has the distinctive diamond-cut angles that gives the Prism phones their name, and while it’s not exactly cutting edge in terms of technology, the $80 price tag is sure to appeal to plenty of consumers.
It features a 1.8 inch 128×160 pixel TFT display, colored accent lighting on the outside, MP3 and polyphonic ringtones, a whopping 11MB of storage for downloads, 3D animated menus running on the
Symbian Series 40 UI, quad band GSM, a 2.5mm headphone jack and even a voice recorder. If you run with a gadget-minded crowd it’s not going to impress anyone, but if your friends are all about style, it could turn a few heads.
